DialoguesEdit

Karan Kapoor: There're 6 hours before our flight to New York and sitting in this airport is boring. Why don't we go sight-seeing in Amsterdam. It shouldn't be a problem since you have a visa.
Rhea Prakash: How do you know I have a visa?
Karan Kapoor: I went through your bag in the plane.
Rhea Prakash: WHAT? You went through my bag?
Karan Kapoor: You were asleep and I was bored, I saw your bag and figured I'd take a look.
Rhea Prakash: How dare you? Don't you know that a lady's handbag is a personal thing?

[begins walking ahead]

Karan Kapoor: What now? Where are you going?
Rhea Prakash: I thought we were going sight-seeing in Amsterdam.

Rhea Prakash: Karan Kapoor?
Karan Kapoor: That's right.

[notices Rhea and stops in shock]

Karan Kapoor: Nooo Way! Rhea!

[walks over] Well done, yaar. You're looking like a girl!

Rhea Prakash: [swats his hand away] Don't touch me!

[an arc of flowers falls down beside them]

Rhea Prakash: You know what, Karan? Whenever I'm around you something HAS to go wrong.

[notices his shaggy haircut] and...'what' have you done to your hair??

Karan Kapoor: [whining] What, this is my Tom Cruise look yaar. You wouldn't understand, it's not a matter of your level. It's fashion!
Rhea Prakash: [shakes her head] You're a loser!
Karan Kapoor: Forget that, what are you doing here?
Rhea Prakash: What are YOU doing here??
Karan Kapoor: I'm in-charge here
Rhea Prakash: [looks around at the chaos] That much is obvious.
Karan Kapoor: [gives her a look] Actually, my mummy is in-charge here, I'm just helping her out.

[Rhea nods]

Karan Kapoor: So, what are you doing here?
Rhea Prakash: You're organizing a wedding with your mummy, and you don't even know who the bride is??

[points to herself]

Karan Kapoor: No way, you!

[Rhea nods proudly]

Karan Kapoor: You're getting married so late? I figured you already had three or four kids!

[Rhea looks at him in shock]

Karan Kapoor: Come on, do you have any? You can tell me.
Rhea Prakash: [disgusted] You're really a loser, Karan. I figured that one slap and three years later you would've come to your senses. I guess I was wrong. Some people 'never' change. My bags are in the car, have them taken up to my room.
Karan Kapoor: Do I look like a porter to you?
Rhea Prakash: Something like that! Bye, Karan.

[walks away]


Rhea Prakash: I never thought I'd use these words with you, but I think I'll miss you.
Karan Kapoor: We'll meet very soon, Rhea. Do you know why? Because this life is very long, even if we don't have enough time.

[Karan is trying to convince Rhea to have an arranged marriage by acting out an "interview" with a potential husband]

Karan Kapoor: Now, what about children?
Rhea Prakash: What about them?
Karan Kapoor: No, I'm not asking you. Don't you want to ask me if I like children?
Rhea Prakash: Oh yes, of course! So, do you like children?
Karan Kapoor: Very much! First, I want a girl, beautiful and intelligent, just like you. I'm going to be a very good daddy. If any boy like me comes in front of her, I'll tear his head off.
Rhea Prakash: [laughs] And you think if you do this, it will make you a good father?
Karan Kapoor: Listen, you're going to be such a good mother that it won't matter if I spoil the children a little.
Rhea Prakash: I see. So I do all the work and you do all the spoiling?
Karan Kapoor: Yes! See, if you look at it from my point of view, we're the perfect marriage. All we need to complete the family photo is a little dog.
Rhea Prakash: And we'll call the dog Tommie.
Karan Kapoor: That's a stupid name...ok, the dog's name will be Tommie, But on one condition - you do all the walking and feeding of Tommie.
Rhea Prakash: Done.
Karan Kapoor: All I'm going to do is sit at the table and feed him little bits off my plate, saying, "Here, Tommie, eat, eat."
Rhea Prakash: So after the wedding, what are you going to do besides spoil the kids and Tommie?
Karan Kapoor: What else is there to do? I'm just going to kick back and enjoy my life with the kids and Tommie.

[Rhea stares at him]

Karan Kapoor: Oh yes, and you.
Rhea Prakash: So I come after the kids and Tommie?
Karan Kapoor: No, Rhea, that was a mistake. I meant with you.
Rhea Prakash: So I come after the kids and Tommie?
Karan Kapoor: No. Rhea, that- I'm sorry.
Rhea Prakash: If you put my name after the kids and Tommie, I'll cut you up into little, little, little, little, little pieces and feed them to Tommie!
Karan Kapoor: Ok, ma'am, ok, I'm sorry!

[takes her face in his hands]

Karan Kapoor: From now on, the kids and Tommie come second. The only person I'll love in this world is you.

[stare at each other, then quickly move away]

Karan Kapoor: [nervously laughing] See how easy arranged marriages are?

Karan Kapoor: [Walking away from Interview...starts to rain] Rain in January..?
Rhea Prakash: It doesn't rain in January!

[Karan turns around and sees Rhea standing there his book in her hand]

Rhea Prakash: This was bound to happen Karan...Because whenever we meet...
Karan Kapoor: Something or the other goes wrong.

Rhea Prakash: Say it.
Karan Kapoor: What?
Rhea Prakash: What you've never said to me before.
Karan Kapoor: That I love the kids and Tommy more than you?

[looks at the book]

Karan Kapoor: Did you read the book?
Rhea Prakash: [shakes head, mumbling no] uhn uh
Karan Kapoor: [moves closer] How did you like it?
Rhea Prakash: [sighing] Reminded me a of a friend...Have i ever told you about this friend of mine?
Karan Kapoor: Never
Rhea Prakash: [moving closer still] I met him many years ago...
Karan Kapoor: And kept on meeting him...
Rhea Prakash: Until he became my best friend.
Karan Kapoor: So when he fell in love with you, why did you leave?
Rhea Prakash: Because he didn't stop me!
Karan Kapoor: [awkwardly] I don't like the sound of this friend one bit!
Rhea Prakash: Listen, don't say anything against my friend!
Karan Kapoor: [standing face to face] Then what should I say?
Rhea Prakash: What you have never managed to say before.
Karan Kapoor: What? That I'll love you more than the kids and Tommie?
Rhea Prakash: [grabs him by his shirt] You better! Otherwise i'll hack you up into little tiny pieces and--
Karan Kapoor: [puts his fingers on her lips] Shh!

[They both start crying and hug]

Karan Kapoor: [pulls away] I Love you, Rhea.

[both laugh/cry and hug again]
